Finding spyware and hidden monitoring software

We have a SBS 2003 that has very confidential information.

I did a McAfee Viruscan today and immediately received the Notification "The On-Demand Scan found alterations to code or data which may indicate that a rootkit is attempting to hide files, registry keys, processes or other items..."

It's the first time I've come across this and, although McAfee suggests a scan in safe mode, are there any good tools or ways using  McAfee Enterprise edition to determine if this is serious monitoring software and where it's coming from?

Thanks,

Mike

There are many anti-rootkit utilities, but there is more probability that this is false alarm than it's really a rootkit.
